Stranger Things breakout star Dacre Montgomery transforms into Jason Todd/Red Hood for the DCEU in this stunning new piece of fan art.
During a recent interview for the third season of Netflix’s Stranger Things, Dacre Montgomery responded to those Jason Todd/Red Hood fan castings and he admitted that he would be totally interested to play Jason Todd/Red Hood with one caveat: it would need to be outside of the DC Extended universe, just like Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker movie that’s hitting theaters later this year. Warner Bros. probably doesn’t have any serious plans to develop a movie centered on Batman’s former Robin and future Red Hood Jason Todd, but that hasn’t stopped fan artists from transforming Dacre Montgomery into the character.
Artist William Gray has created a cool piece that transforms Dacre Montgomery into former Batman sidekick Jason Todd/Red Hood. In the piece, the Stranger Things actor can be seen with a look that might just work with the current set of DCEU films. You can check it out below.

Although Warner Bros. isn’t working on a Jason Todd/Red Hood standalone film, the studio has plenty of other projects in the works. The list includes Matt Reeves’ The Batman, The Flash standalone film, Green Lantern Corps, The Suicide Squad, Aquaman 2, The Trench, Black Adam, a Shazam! sequel, Supergirl, Plastic Man and New Gods.
The DC Extended Universe continues next year with Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) on February 7, 2020, followed by Wonder Woman 1984 on June 5, 2020. The standalone Joker movie set outside of the DCEU starring Joaquin Phoenix as the Clown Prince of Crime is slated to hit theaters October 4, 2019.
Dacre Montgomery can currently as Billy Hargrove be seen in Netflix’s Stranger Things 3. Here’s the official synopsis for the third season:
“It’s 1985 in Hawkins, Indiana, and summer’s heating up. School’s out, there’s a brand new mall in town, and the Hawkins crew are on the cusp of adulthood. Romance blossoms and complicates the group’s dynamic, and they’ll have to figure out how to grow up without growing apart. Meanwhile, danger looms. When the town’s threatened by enemies old and new, Eleven and her friends are reminded that evil never ends; it evolves. Now they’ll have to band together to survive, and remember that friendship is always stronger than fear.”
